Natural Beauty Tips to Get Rid of Dandruff

Updated on November 24, 2017

For many of us dandruff has been or is currently a problem. Dry, itchy scalp has plaqued 97% of the American population at some point in their life. But when you familiarize yourself with some of the amazing natural beauty products Mother Nature has provided, you can tame this problem and even clear it completely.

Dandruff is caused by the dead skin cells on the scalp flaking off excessively. It can be cause by either oily skin, due to the excessive amount of oil speeding up the bodies natural shedding process creating more dead skin, or it can be caused by dry skin. The end result is the same; small white flakes being visible in your hair, and falling onto your clothing. It can be uncomfortable, itchy and embarrassing.
